best looking line-up possible, Higgins-Chipchura-S.Kost will make an awesome 3rd line as all 3 are defensive sound, especially Chip who is already our best defensive forward and Latendresse has to play with Koivu, i'm sure this year he'l be a much better, faster player with all of his training and power skating lessons, awesome line-up.

It's too bad you like Brisebois cause i would really like you as a poster here....

I might be the only one, but I really don't like that third line. I think Kostitsyn and Higgins' offense would be wasted with a guy like Chipchura who's a rookie with little in terms of speed and shooting skills. He could be decent offensively eventually, I'm hoping the Habs get a veteran instead. I also disagree with what you said about Kostitsyn being sound defensively, he's ok.

Guys, forget about Latendresse on the top two lines unless there's an injury. He's a 3rd/4th liner and might even have to fight for a spot on the team if some of the kids from Hamilton have good camps. Remember what happened to Lapierre at the beginning of last year.....

I can almost guarantee you the 2nd line will be Koivu/Tanguay and either Higgins or S. Kostitsyn - both of which are better offensively and defensively than Lats. Koivu's line needs to be able to score AND play D against the other team's top line - there's no way Latendresse can do that.

Yeah, Chipchura is such a good defensive forward that he's apparently too good for the NHL. Gainey wanted to keep everything fair for the other teams, so that's why he was sent down.

Get real, even Gainey said a couple of months back that Chipchura is barely hanging on to the depth chart... and that was as a 4th line center before we added Tanguay and Laraque.

Gainey said Chipchura has a spot on the team this season. I don't know where you're getting your facts

Essentially (say you wake up 7 AM and you go to bed at 11 PM).. you aren't supposed to eat a lot of 'Carbs' after about 2 - 3 PM.. Also, eating your last mean around 6 PM - 7 PM is good, as you aren't going to bed with a lot of unburned calories.

Another thing I've learned is your biggest meal is supposed to be your first meal.. and as the day winds on, you eat less and less.

He had a spot on the team last season aswell.

Regardless, hanging on to the 4th line is still a spot on the team... just not a very good one. Hope that helps you sleep at night.

I think you're both right. As of now, Chips is pencilled in as the 4th line center. However, if he has a great camp, he could go to #3 (but I doubt it), if he has a terrible camp then there's a possibility that someone takes his place - that could be someone acquired via free agency or trade, or maybe another young player who has a great camp (hello Max Pacioretty).

Max, I know you love the young guys, [I mean in a hockey sense] but how about saying that Chipchura has shown in jr. and the A, along with his brief stint in the NHL, the potential to be a very good defensive player.

If you're the best defensive forward on the team, said team doesn't demote you during a season in which they have issues with 1 goal leads late in games. It wasn't all about faceoffs, there were missed assignments that caused the staff to make a change.

They think he can play, Gainey used his name when listing the depth chart, but let's not get carried away.

I like things about his game, I'd like to see how he'd play with guys like Higgins and S.Kost. who play at a higher tempo than Chip saw with TK and whoever. It would add a lot to the lineup if he plays well in this type of situation, but he isn't the best anything until he does it.

Yes because we have a lot of players who can slid into his position. Humm.. Ryan White is the only one.. and he needs a year in the AHL to work on skating and play against pros.

Chipchura will most likely be playing on the third line, as Lapierre will play with BGL and TKO.

Chipchura will be the third line center to start the season. Max Pacioretty won't replace Chips or Lapierre as they are centers and he is not. Pacioretty would have to beat out one of the members of the top six wingers, Sergei Kostitsyn, Andrei Kostitsyn, Alexei Kovalev, Chris Higgins, Alex Tanguay and Guillaume Latendresse. I'd say the only one he has a realistic shot at is Lat's and that won't happen, not this season. Pacioretty will just be an injury call-up.

Chipchura shouldn't be afraid of anyone, Lapierre will have to be mindful of Ryan White and Ben Maxwell if they have impressive camps to break the line-up. If either of the two more offensive prospects make it, then Chipchura will slot to fourth line center over Lapierre and Lapierre will either conver to fourth line winger or become trade bait.

I agree with almost all of what you said (for some reason I thought Pacioretty was a center) - BUT disagree with the fact that Chipchura is ahead of Lapierre on the depth chart. I think they (rightly) see Lapierre as having more offensive upside than Chipchura, which will result in Lapierre centering more offensive players (Lats and S. Kost) on a 3rd line, while Chips centers a 4th line with defensive/tough players.

In any case, I still maintain that we need a center. Sundin, Lang, Shawn Horcoff, or any of the other rumors coming through would be an upgrade over either Lapierre or Chipchura IMO.

If I have any faith in this management, which I do, they know Chipchura has more offensive upside than Lapierre can dream of. If they think Lapierre is more offensive, then I'm going to be a very depressed man with Lapierre ruining what could be a capable third line.

I can't agree with this at all. Lapierre has shown next to nothing in terms of offensive potential during his 100 or so NHL games. I just don't see how Laiperre is a better fit on a line with Sergei and Higgins than Chipchura. Somebody please explain this to me.

But I agree with the second part. We need an offensive center. If Plekanec were to get injured we are ****ed.

You must have forgotten his 1st four games as a Hab. His last four in the regular season also showed a bit of promise.
